Being able to communicate is key if you want to keep your relationship strong. But communication doesn’t always have to be a heart-to-heart or an hour-long talk. Fleeting physical contact can express plenty, especially if your love language is touch.
“Touch is one of the most primitive ways we can communicate, but it is also one of the most effective,” explains Dr David Givens, director of the Centre of Nonverbal Studies. “It’s the first ‘language’ we learn as babies, so we understand it quickly and instinctively.”
“Since men are less verbal than women are, a simple gesture can have more impact on him than a lengthy conversation might,” says David. Read on to discover six touches that will do everything from bringing your guy out of a funk to preventing a fight, and help you communicate beyond words.
